Research on Significance, Present Situation and Countermeasures of Spreading Seven-step Washing Technique in Colleges and Universities

Shaoqun CHEN


Seven-step washing is a relatively mature hygiene method that can remove residual bacteria from hands. It has been widely mentioned in the prevention and control of COVID-19 in China, but it has not been fully and skillfully mastered by the general public. Colleges and universities are under great pressure from epidemic prevention and control. If the seven-step washing technique can be popularized, the pressure of epidemic prevention and control can be effectively alleviated in terms of short-term performance. In terms of long-term effect, it is also an inevitable requirement for promoting healthy China strategy and building a strong public health system. It is feasible for colleges and universities to promote seven-step washing techniques, but at present, no consensus has been formed in promoting seven-step washing techniques, and most colleges and universities still stay in the stage of knowledge publicity. It is suggested to continue to create a good campus atmosphere for the promotion of seven-step washing technique, incorporate the study of seven-step washing technique into the regular college entrance education system for freshmen, promote the involvement of medical staff in the study of seven-step washing technique, and strengthen the unified leadership of the promotion of seven-step washing technique in colleges and universities.
